Kolkata/Mumbai: A Mumbai Police team today searched the house of former Star India CEO Peter Mukerjea, husband of Sheena Bora murder accused Indrani Mukerjea.

Police also seized a laptop and papers related to bank accounts and investments of Indrani Mukerjea's former husband and co-accused Sanjeev Khanna in the Sheena Bora murder case from his residence in the southern part of the city.

According to a senior officer of Kolkata Police, the team from Mumbai Police, along with a team from the city force, visited Khanna's residence in Hastings area this morning and seized his laptop as a part of their probe into the murder mystery.

He said the Mumbai Police team also seized papers related to Khanna's bank accounts and investments.

"They (Mumbai Police) asked for our help in getting Khanna's laptop. We only assisted them in that and we have no clue about the investigation into the case," the officer said.

A source in Kolkata Police said that for seizing the laptop, the team required a "search warrant" without which they would not have been able to get into Khanna's house and hence, the assistance of the local police was needed.

It was also learnt that Mumbai Police was also trying to talk to Siddharth Das, who claimed to be Sheena Bora's biological father.

Police also recorded Peter Mukerjea's statement and reportedly quizzed his wife Indrani and the other two accused in his presence.

Mukerjea reached the Khar police station here at 10.30 am to record his statement.

Indrani, her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and driver Shyam Rai, who were allegedly involved in the murder were also brought there.

The police are understood to have questioned the three accused in the presence of Peter and their counsel in perhaps the first such confrontation since Indrani was arrested on August 24 for allegedly murdering Sheena and hiding her body in 2012.

Indrani is accused of killing Sheena, her daughter from an earlier relationship, in 2012 over a financial dispute, with the help of her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and driver Shyam Rai.
